Wake a Serpent by Mr--Jack Wake a Serpent by Mr--Jack
So yesterday I was going through my Frazetta and Bonner books and got inspired again (haven't done much of late); I feel a little weird since this is so obviously derivative, but it's a lot of fun and a lovely way to work, and I was really happy with this in the end :)
Took about 7 or 8 hours, Photoshop.
A rough process walkthrough is up here if you're interested :)

Enjoy!

Perfect!
This is one of my favourites paintings, since a long time.
The way you give focus to the scene is great!

I like how the brush strokes look fast and loose. And how the warm colors of the cat and woman's hair create a sort of triangle with the cool sky, leading the viewer right to the enemy!

i once saw a quote in a Frazetta art book first page i believe but it said "damn it stop trying to draw like Frazetta there is only one and he's IT" but im always blown away by frazetta inspired art and your work here takes the cake so dont feel bad about it im sure frank would be atleast marginally impressed haha.

Yeah, well, that's certainly true
There's a line somewhere between being 'inspired and influenced by' and actually just 'trying to draw like' someone, though, and I guess that's what you've got to find :)

Thanks!
